SIRIUS XM RADIO announced today that FOO FIGHTERS frontman DAVE GROHL will host an exclusive, limited-run show which will air on a variety of SIRIUSXM music channels.
"DAVE GROHL PRESENTS SOUND CITY" premieres this THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 29th at 4p ET on CLASSIC VINYL, CHANNEL 26, in advance of the release of GROHL's feature-length film documentary of the same name. The weekly series will feature GROHL telling stories about the music recorded at the iconic SOUND CITY STUDIOS in L.A. GROHL's passion for the studio led him to purchase the main recording console after SOUND CITY closed for commercial use in MAY 2011.
"I'm so proud of the SOUND CITY film and beyond excited for the world to see what I've been working on for the past year," said GROHL. "Even before that, though, I'm grateful to SIRIUSXM for giving me the opportunity to share all this great music and to let people know what got me excited about SOUND CITY in the first place."
"We are always looking for innovative and different ways to celebrate and showcase music," SIRIUSXM Pres./Chief Content Officer SCOTT GREENSTEIN said. "We are thrilled to offer DAVE GROHL this unique platform to take listeners through the music and stories behind some of the best music in rock and roll's vault. His show will offer a musician's point of view and allow for listeners to get a first-hand perspective on creating music."
